Exploring new ways to help you get around with reimagined maps

We're looking at how our printed transit maps can work with our digital maps and real-time service information to provide a more complete picture of how service runs at any given moment.

We're testing out four new maps, which show different ways of sharing information about buses, subways, and the neighborhoods they serve. Our new focus no longer relies on a one-map solution, but instead uses a collection of printed maps and diagrams that work together, each one providing details about different types of transit information.

Four transit maps are installed on the wall of a subway station. Two men are walking by, one in a white shirt and the other in a red checked shirt.

Our reimagined maps

The Subway Diagram lays out the entire city-wide subway network, with each subway represented by its own line. So for example, along 8th Ave in Manhattan, there are three blue lines, one each to represent the , , and .

The subway diagram can help visualize how each subway line works more easily, but it is not meant to be geographically accurate.

The Bus Connection map shows all nearby bus connections and the routes they take to other areas.

The Close-By Neighborhood map provides you with detailed information about immediate connections and points of interest within a short walk of the station.

Finally, the City-Wide Geographic map displays a geographically accurate subway system, and shows the entire Select Bus (SBS) network. This map is more representative of the physical space and is to-scale, so that distances between locations are accurately shown.
